Confronted by Grayson, Reid calls security
Congressman Alan Grayson wanted to know why Harry Reid isn’t supporting him for Senate. It got heated when Grayson insisted that Reid say his name.
The outburst prompted a Reid staffer in the room to bring in the senator’s security detail, who stood inside the door during the rest of the meeting as a precaution.
Reid met with members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, but when Grayson was called on to speak, he repeatedly asked Reid if the senator knew his name.
“Yes, Alan,” Reid replied.
“Say my name,” Grayson insisted more than once.
Grayson then produced a printed-out news article that featured a quote from Reid criticizing Grayson’s ethics issues.
Asked why he gave the quote, Reid replied, “Because it’s true and I want you to lose.”
